The Drs: Matt McGorry As A Bodybuilder + Deadly Mushrooms

The Doctors: Matt McGorry On Bodybuilding

The Doctors welcomed actor Matt McGorry from How to Get Away with Murder. Dr Rachael Ross said on the show, he plays a man named Asher who recently became a bit of a snitch on the show. Dr Travis Stork then pointed out that Matt actually used to be a trainer and bodybuilder. He said he became a trainer around 17 and loved it, especially helping others. Matt said days on set can be long, but health and fitness is still a major priority.

Matt said he stopped competing five years ago, and struggled to find a place of moderation. He said ultimately we all work out because we want to be happy. He said the best he ever looked was a bodybuilding show that he did, but it was the most miserable he’d ever felt in his life. He was working out twice a day every day and every single piece of food was weighed and measured, so it took over his life. Plus, when he was in competition, he said he didn’t feel healthy. He needed to find a balance.

Matt said a lot of people want to achieve quick weight loss, which isn’t sustainable. He’s currently in the process of producing his own feature about “a couple idiots” who decided to steal the Mona Lisa. Dr Rachael then gave Matt some bonus points for wearing a “Black Lives Matter” bracelet before saying goodbye.

The Doctors: Mushrooms Killed Dwayne Johnson’s Dog

The Doctors then switched gears and welcomed back veterinarian Dr Courtney Campbell. Recently, Dwayne Johnson shared on social media that he had to put down one of his new French Bulldogs, Brutus, because he ate a mushroom while playing outside. Johnson shared “As all puppies and dogs do, he ate a mushroom while playing outside with his brother Hobbs. This mushroom happened to have a lethal toxicity and within hours it was rapidily destroying his liver and immune system to the point of no return.” He encouraged everyone to be mindful of mushrooms anywhere that their dog could have access to. “What looks innocent can be deadly to your little family members,” Johnson said.

Dr Campbell said when you think mushroom think “mystery” because you just don’t know what they could do. There are eight different kinds of toxic mushrooms out there. Mushrooms can be dangerous for humans too, but dogs tend to be more curious. If your dog licks or eats a mushroom, it’s cause for concern. Get them out of your yard because you never want to put you or your furry friends at risk.
